Master Printmaker Patricia Clark founded A6 (also known as Atelier 6000) in 2007 in Bend, Oregon. Central Oregon’s only publicly-accessible printmaking and book arts studio, Atelier 6000 was modeled after the traditional French atelier, or working studio. Clark moved to Bend to “retire” after a lengthy career as an arts educator; most recently, Clark had served as Chair of the Art Department at California State University, Long Beach.
